"I liked what he said," Palin told USA Today newspaper, even adding that she had mentioned similar themes about "the fallen nature of man and why war is necessary at times" in her recent book "Going Rogue: An American Life."And that's why in Palinland we have to send 100,000 NATO troops, mostly our own, in pursuit of an estimated 100 of those Al Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan, which comes to about $1 billion for each individual terrorist. In Obamaland as well. Isn't it nice that they agree?
"Of course war is the last thing any American I believe wants to have to engage in, but it's necessary. We have to stop these terrorists over there," she added.

President Obama's Oslo speech in 45 words
I was going to write a long post titled "Achieving peace through just war: Orwell meets Aquinas in Obama's Oslo speech," but since the speech was so weightless and is already in the process of being forgotten, it hardly seems worth the effort. I'll leave the commentary to one of the fans of the speech, Sarah Palin, who summed it up in 45 words if I'm counting right.
